Granny Dan is a story within a story, and a relatively short book. A young woman discovers
the story of her grandmother's
life after the death of her beloved Granny Dan. The papers and letters transferred to the
granddaughter provide insight on her granny when she was a young woman living an interesting
life as a premier ballerina. The story
is set in Russia around the time of the revloution and there is plenty of royalty to keep you
interested...but reading about the love of Granny's life (who is not grandpa!) is what will keep
the pages turning.
What is interesting about Granny Dan is how this book prompts you to think about those in your
own life. Many of us know and think of our grandparents or other older adults in our life as
just that...older people. But many of these individuals have interesting stories to tell; it
is true they were young too!
